I’ve been involved in rugby in some shape or form since I was a child when I played mini rugby. I played at school, but an injury forced me to take up refereeing. I was fortunate enough to referee up to national level in England and refereed games in the USA, South Africa and New Zealand. In my later years I’ve worked as a team doctor for Coventry RFC, Worcester Warriors RFC and now Wasps RFC. I’m also fortunate enough to be the team doctor for England Counties U20s for the last two years. Rugby will always be a huge part of my life and despite the injuries it has caused me I still feel it’s the best sport in the world!
I'm a huge rugby fan. I’ve never played due to dislocating shoulders, however I became involved around four years ago when I was looking for a new challenge after working in climbing and football. I started working at my local club and now I also work with the RFU as a Locum Physio with the Women's Pathway. I also worked with the Ladies team in the lead up to the 2017 Rugby World Cup.
I can't imagine doing anything different now, I really enjoy working with a team and the variety and challenges the job brings. It's a lot of fun and I would really encourage people to go and watch a game at any level, but especially the England Women's Rugby Team.
